The price of the former General Motors fuel cell R&D complex in Honeoye Falls has been reduced dramatically. The 19-acre property is being marketed by commercial real estate broker CB Richard Ellis' Rochester office.

What will greater Rochester look like in 50 years?

democratandchronicle.com — It's a question worth asking because our region is projected to diversify more rapidly than most American metro areas over the next half century, and the shift could have stark social and economic ramifications. Long-held notions of race could be redefined, public education could be reshaped and traditional minority groups could shoulder a greater share of the region's economic growth.

Amerks rally to beat IceHogs

democratandchronicle.com — To the victor goes ... why, of course, the marching band hat. At least it does for the Rochester Americans. Following every victory, the Amerks will present the band hat to the player whose efforts were considered to be most vital to the cause. No musical talent is required, either, as Tim Schaller will attest.

Astorino hit on corruption; Cuomo countered with HUD

blogs.democratandchronicle.com — Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino sought to paint Gov. Andrew Cuomo as potentially facing a federal indictment over his allegedly meddling in a corruption-busting panel.

Astorino hit on corruption; Cuomo countered with HUD

democratandchronicle.com — Cuomo dismissed the claims, countering with a Westchester County housing battle under Astorino that led to charges that Astorino is discrimination against housing for minorities.
